As a consumer, so many things are being thrown our way, including misinformation.  There are so many  at home treatments that are being advertised as a professional treatments, when in fact it’s not the same. Dermaplaning is an advanced exfoliation performed with a surgical steel blade.Which removes 2-3 weeks of dead skin, allowing products to penetrate deeper, softening lines and wrinkles, improving texture, superficial acne scarring, and leaves you with a immediate glow!The blade is extremely sharp (it is a surgical steel scaple), but with the proper angle, pressure, passes, it can be done safely to give you the results you’re looking for.

The at home brow razors that can be purchased in a grocery store are now being advertised as “Dermaplaning”. They are simply a razor to a shave your face. The razor is not sharp enough, in fact it has jagged edges that cause micro tears in your skin! Yikes. Doing this to your skin at home will damage your skin over time. If your skin isn’t  prepped correctly, or you use an active ingredient beforehand, you can strip your skins natural protective layer and cause your skins barrier to become comprised. Dermaplaning isn’t for every skin type, and there are contraindications as well as things to avoid 24 hours post.

So… go see a licensed pro for this advanced exfoliation treatment.It’s recommended  every 4 weeks, and paired with professional skincare, you will see results. I have been performing Dermaplaning since 2018 and absolutely love the results! Dermaplaning is great 2 weeks before a wedding, as it temporarily removes the Vellus hair (peach fuzz) so your makeup goes on smooth. It’s one of the most effective anti-aging treatments with no downtime.



I recently had 2 of my clients mention that they went somewhere else to get their faced waxed and they both broke out in a red itchy rash. They both stated that the tech double dipped in the wax, and didn’t cleanse their faces before or after. This got me to thinking, it is important to educate the public on what to look for to ensure the place of business is following the safety and sanitation laws. It is our responsibility as licensed professionals to follow these laws for the safety of our clients and ourselves. Please read below for some tips to look for the next time you go get a service at a spa or salon.
